    Not supporting

    the ‘meatout’

    In response to Mr. Templeton and his letter to the editor, “Support the Meatout,” I’m not exactly planning a “meatout” to celebrate springtime in Vermont. I like veggies as much as the next person and do plan on getting my fill of them.

    My celebration will be a barbecue of burgers and dogs, and, of course, chicken smothered in barbecue sauce cooked to perfection on the old grill. I don’t care much for legumes, but me and the boys will party with veggies, like barley and hops from none other then Mr. John Barleycorn. Good, old, brewed in Vermont beer. Ice cold thirst quenchers.

    Meanwhile, my horse will be munching on his grains and oats. He’s into the meatout.
